Healthcare jobs such as registered nurses, LPN's, LVN's and related vocational technicians provide over 15 million jobs in the United States alone. Some health sciences graduates find employment as health technologists and technicians, electronic medical records specialists, billing department personnel, health information technicians, diagnostic medical sonographers, or radiologic technicians. The American Hospital Association is the national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities.

The outlook for technical medical careers is especially bright, and opportunities for health sciences program grads are expected to increase by 10% to 20% in the next eight years. The increasing number of elderly people is seen as a primary factor in this growth. As people age they have more medical problems, and hospitals will require more technicians to perform specialized healthcare services. Aside from a good salary, most medical personnel receive comprehensive medical and dental benefits, as well as 401k retirement plans.

Clinical Studies

Typically, clinical trials compare a new product or therapy with another that already exists to determine if the new one is as successful as, or better than, the existing one. In some studies, participants may be assigned to receive a placebo. In double-blind, experimental research trials, the participants are not informed about which medicine is being used. Double-blind studies are specifically designed to prevent both patients and scientists on the research team from influencing results. This ensures more scientifically-conclusive results. In single-blind trials, by comparison, only the patient is unaware of which medicines are being tested.

Most clinical studies pose the risk of minor discomfort, although some study participants experience complications that require medical attention. In rare cases, participants have been seriously injured or have died resulting from their participation in trials of experimental therapies. The specific risks associated with a research protocol are described in detail in the informed consent document, which participants are required to sign before participating in research. Also, a member of the research team must explain the major risks of participating in a study. Before deciding to participate, carefully consider all possible risks and benefits.

College Inspector is the work of a group of Thai students in Bangkok, using info from the US Department of Education, Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). Certification requirements include board certification by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). The license period varies by individual state, but is usually valid for either two or three years, at which time you'll need to renew. Registered nurses (RNs) are not required to be certified in a particular specialty by state law. For example, it isn't necessary to be a Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN) to work on a hospital Medical-Surgical (MedSurg) floor, and most MedSurg nurses are not CMSRNs. To keep your license current, you must take continuing education courses, and renew your license every few years. There are a fixed number of credits that each state requires, and if you work in a hospital facility, these courses may be offered on-site.
